My wife and I just bought a home in New Mexico last week and today was the closing. We bank at Bank of America and had an appointment to wire the money for the purchase this morning. The wire person was not at her desk so we got the branch manager and asked what was going on as we had an appointment and the money had to be wired today. She told us the gal had phoned in sick and that left only 3 employees today. That is the minimum they are allowed to have in order to open their doors due to safety concerns. How about going to your bank, folks, and finding the doors locked because they don't have enough employees showing up for work???
I thought it was bad this summer when time and time again we would try to enter a restaurant and the doors were locked with signs telling us "due to lack of employees, only drive up orders are being accepted"! Bank of America is the nations 2nd largest bank so this is a problem that could soon become epidemic.
Don't know about anyone else but I'm getting very concerned. I also spoke tonight with a consultant that is very knowledgeable with CRM (Salesforce) and said that they were expecting many new products from CRM but that CRM is having manpower problems and that is slowing down the releases. This final quarter of the year is starting to look very, very scary to me.
